    The features and sound on these headphones are really cool. The Bose connect app has a lot of features to customize the experience of the headphones and helps make the price feel like it was worth it.

    It's a great wireless in ear headphones. Love that you can see your pulse and the bose connect app can let you link other Bose Bluetooth headphones to the same source. Great for sharing a movie on a plane without the cord.

    I bought these verses the regular soundport because I wanted the heart rate monitor that pulse offers. This works with my existing endomondo app, so I was happy about that. The only slightly negative thing I will say, is sometimes your heart rate isn't detected if your adjustment in your left ear is off.

    I had never had Bluetooth headphones before so I was very excited to try these out. Pros: great sound quality, volume control on the headphones, heart rate monitor on left earbud, easy to use app, comfortable, light, holds charge well Cons: cord connecting two buds is an awkward length and gets pushed around by my ponytail, earbuds are a little heavy, sometimes heart rate gets "lost" Overall, a good pair of headphones for sport with great sound quality and some cool features. Some details could be better.

    Im not a health buff nor do I go the gym, but this would be the headphone for people who do those things. The app is easy to use, so you can use the feature that tells you your heart rate. The pop of red is just perfect on its overall appearance.

    Comfortable, dependable, and good quality. People I talk to on the phone using the headphones say it sounds clear and loud. When I play music they sound great. The heart rate monitor is useful and the app is simple.

    headphones are charged and ready to use right out of the box. The Bose app for iPhone is easy to use. The only complaint I have is sometimes the heart rate monitor doesn't "read" my heart rate. not sure if thats an iPhone compatibility issue or a Bose issue. other than that, these are great.

    I got these earphones looking for heart rate monitoring and high quality sound that could stand up to intense wear. The app setup was easy. They were comfortable once I got the right size eat insert. The controls and microphone work great. I highly recommend these earphones.

    These headphones are excellent for the gym. Sound quality is outstanding, heart rate monitor works well with Endomondo and other apps. Now I am able to measure my heart rate with accuracy. Results are very similar to the Apple Watch Series 2. if you are looking for great sound quality and ability to measure your heart rate these headphones are worth buying!

    Excellen Wireless Earbuds - Especially for Actives

    The Bose SoundSport Pulse wireless earbuds are great. I especially value tech that simply does what it says it'll do, and these earbuds hit the mark. The free companion app allows you to pair them with 2 devices so you can switch back and forth easily. I used them with with my iPhone 7 Plus and iPad Pro 9.7" and the pairing was effortless. Sound is solid. I used them for watching video on my iPad (in addition to normal use with the iPhone). The app also tracks your pulse (thus the name) and does a decent job of keeping a record, etc. The buds fit comfortably in my ears and have fins that keep them in while involved in running or other activities. It did take a little practice to find the best way to work with Siri, but I eventually got the hang of it (press and hold the on-cable controller and say "Hey Siri" and wait for the 'beep' before giving a command). I suspect that has more to do with Siri than the earbuds. The controls are a little high near my right ear on the short cable that extends from ear to ear, but there's not much choice on that. The included clip keeps them attached when you need to take one or both out and it comes with a handy carrier that clips on with a carabiner. All-in-all, the SoundSport Pulse are an excellent pair of wireless earbuds. For me, they also came just in time for my new, headphone jack-less, iPhone 7.

    Well Designed Bluetooth Headphones

    I am rating this Bose product at 3.5 out of 5 stars. These Bose SoundSport wireless earphones are comfortable in the ears and can be worn for a long time with little to no ear discomfort. It is necessary to choose the correct size of silicone earbud for the best comfort, as using too large of an earbud, causes the earpiece to feel cramped in the ear. The battery lasts for around 5 hours, depending on overall listening volume, but the charging time is fairly quick. These Bose wireless headphones have good quality sound that you would expect from a Bose product. Both the left and right headphones are easy to hold and almost seem like they were designed to have small handles on each headphone, making each headphone easy to grab and place into the ear. The Bluetooth pairing process is quick with these Bluetooth headphones, once the headphones have been paired with a device, they connect quickly after being turned on. There is a micro USB cable provided, but no USB charging adapter, that was kind of unexpected, a USB charging adapter would have been nice. These headphones were designed to wrap around the back of the neck area, but I found that allowing the cord to dangle down in front of the shirt area, is another way to wear the headphones, which allows the microphone to point closer to the mouth. There is a flap that is covering the micro USB charging port on the right under side of the Bose SoundSport headphone, once the flap is pulled out, it cannot be turned to the side very far, which makes plugging in the micro USB cable slightly challenging at first When reviewing a product, and deciding upon an overall rating score, I figure in the selling price of a product, I feel as if there is not much to these Bluetooth headphones, and so I feel as if the selling price should kind of reflect that. The build quality and design perfection of these Bose SoundSport Pulse headphones, is almost certainly better than the current market competition. The Bose Connect app allows you to adjust the power off at various lengths of time when no signal is detected, and it is also possible to switch the powers saving mode off. The Bose Connect app displays the current heartbeat detected, and the app also allows firmware upgrades to be wirelessly streamed to the headphones. These heartbeat functionality of these Bose wireless headphones, can supposedly be used with other fitness apps. If you are looking for a comfortable and good sounding pair of Bluetooth headphones, then the Bose SoundSport Pulse wireless headphones are a good choice.

    True Bose Sound! Pulse monitor is spot on!

    I had the Bose Bluetooth Sound Sport head phones and also have the Plantronics, LG Tone Infiinium, and Jabra Sport Headphones. These are the same as the Bose Sound Sport; however the pulse monitor is an added bonus. The Bose Connect App works great in conjunction with these headphones. If you are an "Audio Phile or a Fitness Person" these are the headphones I endorse. Plus with Best Buy Protection you can relax knowing that you are covered for the life cycle of the EPIC Bluetooth Headphones. Respectfully, Bill Hubbell

    I have had several different wireless earphones and headphones over the last couple of years including Blueant Pump, Jaybird Bluebuds and PowerBeats to name a few, but these are overall my favorite. The sound quality is great, simple to pair and use and comfortable to wear. The only negative about these is they are very bulky. They protrude from my ears and are a bit of an eyesore to look at while wearing, but being that how they look is not as important as how they sound I still like the these the best. I also like that they track my heartbeat within the Apple Health app. If you don't have an iPhone (I think it works with Android also), then this feature may not be available. Overall, a quality set of headphones that remain comfortable even after long periods of use.

    Wireless headphone works great. No distortion, Bluetooth sync work great without any glitch. Able to control volume from headphone as well as from Bose app. Bass is decent as we cannot expect much from this headphone due to size and design. Amplify Too much of bass will spoil the original sound and Bose is the well recognized company for making quality product and they did not disappointment. Since they have to embed too many stuff inside a small device, I felt little bigger than my need as I am always inclined to wear light weight. Their stay ear tips are awesome, sticks well and no discomfort.... it depends on your preference.

    Great Wireless Headphones

    I have been searching for a nice wireless headphone set for a while. Bose has a reputation which exceeds the consumer expectation and this set of headphones definitely doesn't disappoint. The Bose Connect app, which was easy to download and connect to the headphones, never lost connection, even when I walked away from my device. With the app, I was able to use my headphones on all my devices, which I found extremely convenient. The connectivity was easy and hassle free. You just turn on the headphones by holding the on/off button and the app connects. It's that simple. The earbud is comfortable, light weight and form fitting. The clip to keep them in place is small and easy to attach. I walk in the mornings and found these headphones remained comfortable after wearing them for a long period of time. I am not a runner, so I cannot comment on their ability to stay in place with more movement, however, I didn't have an issue with them staying put while I was out and about. The sound quality is what you would expect with a Bose product, outstanding. It's crisp. It's clear. It allows you to enjoy your music, but doesn't completely cut you off from your surroundings, which is important if you don't want to be caught off guard by something, as it doesn't appear to be a complete noise cancelling headphone. The headphones have a heart rate monitor, which I found a little strange at first. I don't normally associate listening to music with monitoring my heart rate, but for someone who's athletic and using these solely for that purpose may find that a more useful tool. I have a separate athletic device for that, but if you're looking to cut down on the amount of devices you have to rely on while working out, I guess this would be a benefit. I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a nice comfortable pair of wireless headphones.
